I've run across a lot of vintage books lately with really cool covers, but inside they have that crispy old paper that falls apart. I've started removing what's left of the pages and filling the covers with an assortment of blank paper to make fun journals, sketchbooks, or diaries.
This one is from 1896 and called "The Guardian's Mystery" - spooky. Great for recording the mysteries in your own life!
In addition to sketchpaper and watercolor paper, it's chock full of 1930s ledger paper, all of it blank except for the very cool column headings. If you like to draw on graph or ledger paper (Nick Bantock?) this one is for you.
The covers measure 4 3/4" X 7 3/4" and are in excellent condition...see it on Etsy
